greeting card program

by wappaw / December 5, 2005 2:14 PM PST

Hi there

My sister is looking for a program to make greeting cards and possibly calenders. I told her I'd see if I could find something for her. She is a recent switcher and doesn't know where to find mac stuff. She has Photoshop Elements but that is a little too much for her. She's looking for something a little easier.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Tom

Point your sister at http://www.novadevelopment.com where she will find something like she is looking for.
Also, check out the Apple web site by clicking on the Apple (top left of screen) and selecting Mac OS X Software. There are thousands of titles up there so she will have to search.
Google also works well. Try "Greetings card programs for os x" and see what you get. WIth or without quotes

Can do calendars, greeting cards and a whole lot more, yet is pretty simple to use. It also seems to integrate well with the iLife suite which is already on the Mac.

Use any word processor (Word, Open Office, Neo Office, possibly even Google Docs) and create the four pages in A5 page size.
Add text and graphics where you want.
Save the document in .pdf format.
Open pdf in Preview and arrange pages in the order 4, 1, 2, 3 by dragging thumbnails into that order.
Set printer to printer layout to two per page.
Print pages 4 & 1.
Turn paper over and print pages 2 & 3.
Done.

rgds,
